Manila Hotel Welcomed the Year of Water Dragon

Manila Hotel welcomed the Chinese New Year, the year of the water dragon, last Sunday night with grand festivity for luck and prosperity with none other than Feng Shui expert, Maritess Allen, and the King of Talk -Celebrity Host, Boy Abunda.

The countdown to Chinese New Year started at 9:30 pm as Marites Allen conducted incense lighting, blessings and feng shui rituals.

After Ms. Allen gave her predictions and forecasts for The Year of the Water Dragon, every guests were asked to gather as a group under their ally signs. Then we were ushered outside the hotel to write our wishes on the balloons...

...which we later let go when the clock stroke at 12 mignight.

After the fireworks, guests were treated at Centennial Hall for a sumptuous dinner.

Joy Felizardo of Gastronomy by Joy and husband, won the grand raffle prize - dinner for two at Ylang Ylang Restaurant of Manila Hotel.

Nope, John and I were not winners, I borrowed Joy's gift certificate so that her luck would rub off on us.
